DAVIES: Confusion as North-South air link is cut

Welsh Conservatives have called for urgent clarity into the future of the North-South Wales air link after it emerged that flights had been ‘suspended’ pending the outcome of a new public tendering process.


According to a Welsh Government email to the Civil Aviation Authority, that process is expected to conclude by late January, with flights not resuming until at least the 8th February.


Welsh Conservative leader, Andrew RT Davies, has tabled an urgent assembly question seeking clarity from the 


Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies, said:


“This announcement highlights the absolute shambles at the heart of the Welsh Labour Government, and whilst you can debate the merits of the investment which has gone into the North-South air link; it’s very difficult to justify the way they have handled recent developments.


“First the airline lost its safety certificate, unbeknownst to the minister. Now we find that the route has once again suspended with no new operator in sight, despite more than a million pounds a year having been pumped into it.


“The minister should issue an urgent statement updating the public. To suspend the route without having secured a replacement operator puts the long term sustainability of the route under a cloud."
